Carmen Meneses

September 4, 1937 — September 24, 2021

Carmen Emilia Peña Meneses was called home to her Lord and Savior on Friday, September 24, 2021, in Willow Springs, Missouri. She was born on September 4, 1937, in New York, New York.

Carmen was united in marriage and to this union four children were born: Celeste, Walter Michael, Cathy and Caryn, whom she adored and raised with love and strength.

She lived most of her adult life in Dobbs Ferry, New York. Carmen dedicated much of her life to helping others, and worked as a home health coordinator for 30 years prior to retiring. The job she most loved was being a mother and grandmother. One of Carmen’s hobbies was sewing. She made different clothes for her children, grandchildren and other family members. One of her favorite pastimes was to read.

In 2018 she rededicated her life to her faith and Jesus Christ.

Carmen is survived by her four children: Celeste Meneses, East Chester, New York, Walter Michael Meneses and his wife, Mary, Bowling Green, Ohio, Cathy Lewis, Cabool, Missouri, and Caryn Meneses, and Joey, Woodbury, Connecticut. Eight grandchildren: Laura Lewis and Jake, Matthew Lewis and his wife, Idalis, Abby Rossi and her husband, Chris, Philip Meneses and his wife, Marie, Catherine Meneses and fiancé, Chris, Emma and Tara Meneses, and Austin Kinder; and one great-grandchild, Elliott Meneses. She will also be missed by the additional family and friends she brought together with the love, kindness, and joy she was known for.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to the Alzheimer's Association.
